New York Islanders forward David Ullstrom is expected to miss three to four weeks due to a groin injury, according to an announcement by the team on Friday afternoon.
Ullstrom sustained the injury during the Islanders' game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. By all accounts, the injury did not look good at the time and the 23-year-old required help to the dressing room. Ullstrom had made the Islanders out of training camp but was assigned to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, on March 11.
However, he would not stay there long, as the team would recall him on March 13 following the placement of forward Michael Grabner on injured reserve due to an upper-body injury. In 20 games with the Islanders this season, Ullstrom has registered two goals and three assists for five points.
New York has yet to announce who they will recall to replace Ullstrom.
